Digital Communications • Outreach • Environmental Education
In my role as the Program Assistant for the Cornell Lab’s Land Trust Bird Conservation Initiative, I develop outreach materials and resources that educate land trust organizations and private landowners on how they can collaborate with one another as well as use birds as a tool to strengthen their conservation efforts. I’m drawn to this work because I fear for our feathered friends and the places they call home—but, I know that we can enact greater and faster change across the landscape when we work together.
I’m coming to this role with a strong background in communications, education and citizen science. For six years, I was an environmental educator working with students from Vermont’s Green Mountains to New Mexico’s arid mesas. Most recently, I served as an Americorps member with Audubon Vermont for two years where I learned about or participated in their Healthy Forests Initiative and Bobolink Project. I’m excited that as the Land Trust Bird Conservation Initiative Project Assistant, I will continue to support this important work.

Beyond the Lab
When I’m not working, I love slow-birding, cooking new recipes, reading poetry and making art.
